  • Remember that the front of the item must bear a label identifying the product as "Notificación" (Notification), and below it, in smaller letters, the procedure in question (summons, request, resolution) and the words "Expediente núm..." (File no.) or any other information identifying the subject of the notification.
  • Each item will be identified with an adhesive label with a barcode.

Or send it to us as an electronic file:

  • You can choose from different senders and recipients for mass mailings.
  • There is also a document check to let you view, free of charge, on your own computer, the legal validation of the proof of delivery. This uses the Secure Validation Code (CSV) giving access to the electronically signed document so you can verify the integrity and authenticity of the signatures it contains and their respective time stamps.

Just tell us where you want us to deliver it, at Correos we take charge of taking it to its destination:

  • Delivery, signed for by the addressee or authorised person, throughout Spain of 93% of posted items in 3 working days.
  • For mass mailings, delivery times will be established by agreement with the client.

Our Administrative Notifications deliveries also comply with the requirements of the Public Bodies’ Common Administrative Procedure Act 39/2015:

  • Posted items must include a notice of receipt or PEE, to meet the requirement for legal confirmation of receipt,
  • Deliveries must have a second home delivery attempt at a different time from the first one. After two unsuccessful attempts, we keep the notifications available for an established period of 7 calendar days; We also leave an arrival notice in the addressee’s postbox, showing the Post Office, how long it will be kept for and information about the second delivery attempt.
  • A second delivery attempt will not be made if the Notification is rejected by the party concerned, or their representative, if the address is incorrect, or if the addressee is unknown, is deceased or there is any other reason making delivery impossible.
  • The Correos employee must always add their signature and identification number to the notice of receipt accompanying the notification, and the notice of arrival, if applicable.
  • All notifications have free-of-charge delivery control and tracking using our delivery tracker.
